A vampire bee?! Weird, I know, but oh so adorable!! :) I just got the Create a Critter 2 cartridge and just had to make something with it. I chose this cute little vampire bee!
Cute right? ;) The card is 4 1/2"x6 1/4." I used a striped purple and black cardstock from the Bewitched Stack by DCWV. I cut the tree cardstock at 3 1/2"x5 1/2." It is also from DCWV, the Midnight Spell Stack. It is matted with black cardstock cut 1/8" wider. I then covered the small part showing with black diamond Stickles. I cut a strip of black cardstock 1 1/2"x4 1/2" and more striped cardstock 1/8" smaller. I wrapped it with black and white twine and added it to the card. I used a button to gather the twine together. The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps and cut into a banner, with one edge placed under the button. The bee is cut from Create a Critter 2 at 4." I used a Peachy Keen face on it and then hand drew in the fangs with a white gel pen. I added a button where his cape would be tied. I also covered the black parts of his body and head in black diamond Stickles. I used pop-dots to adhere him to the card for some dimension. I then finsihed off the card with two purple buttons in the top corners of the mat the bee is on.
I made this for the following challenges:
- Peachy Keen: sketch
- Die Cuttin' Divas: twine, pop-dots, and three buttons
- Tuesday Alchemy: be inspired by the words - bee, guitar, lunch (I was inspired by bee)
